above as well. little low is on its way. now it's just increasing the fog. enhancing a little bit. so cooler inland is the main impact here. partly to mostly cloudy on saturday and cooler. there will be some drizzle and scattered showers activity in the mountains. there is our system. low cloud deck in place. san jose today 70/56. average 75/52. below on that high temp. 99 in 1,976th record high. 37 way back 1896. low 50s, mid 60s. the key difference is the breeze. 22 gusts to 30. fairfield, i'm telling you, that's going to be cooler weather out to sacramento when it's that strong. low is on its way. its main impact on cooler temps. maybe a few high clouds also forming right now. cooler, breezy. coast and bay not much change there. 50s and 60s. but 70s now instead of 80s.
>> all righty, sal, 7:03, sir, on a friday. yeah. a problem on the san mateo bridge, steve, westbound 92. at the high-rise or near it. there is a crash involving a motorcycle and now traffic has come to a standstill on the san mateo bridge. it had been such a good commute. actually, i think i said westbound. let me correct myself. it's eastbound. however, westbound people are slowing down here at the san mateo bridge. so the entire bridge is affected. i would recommend using the dumbarton bridge or the bay bridge. let's take a live look at the bay bridge as an alternate route for you. it's not that bad. you know, coming up here, maybe out of your way, but you don't want to be stuck in the traffic at the san mateo bridge. even if they were to lift that traffic out of that bridge right now, lift that collision, the damage is done there. we are looking at slow traffic on 17. some late running roadwork on northbound 17. if you are driving from santa
cruz to los gatos, it's not going to get better until the summit. 7:04. back to the desk. we begin with a developing story in the south bay. a stabbing right outside a restaurant in east san jose. police have sectioned off the area for hours this morning. ktvu's janine de la vega is live with what's happening there. janine. >> reporter: well, this is a large shopping center. earlier this morning the entire plaza was completely roped off. but in the last hour they removed some of that tape and are letting people in except this roped off area here that you see behind me, and that's because it appears that's where the fight broke out. now, here's what we know so far. officers say at around midnight they were called to a reported stabbing at story and king. they arrived at this shopping center and found a man who had been stabbed in the neck. police say it appears after some sort of confrontation in
the parking lot. they came into the restaurant bleeding and collapsed on the floor. he died at the scene. homicide detectives have spent the early morning hours collecting evidence in the parking lot and inside the restaurant. they haven't put out any suspect description yet for a motive. >> we still don't know exactly what caused. this that's part of our investigation, part of what we're trying to determine. >> we are still trying to determine exactly who was involved and how they fled the scene. >> reporter: police have been interviewing witnesses and they are trying to see if any of the businesses had security cameras that recorded the attack. they are looking into the possibility that this may be gang related. they just don't know yet. police did let a couple of employees go inside the restaurant to clean up. when we tried to talk to them, none of them were willing to speak to us. back to you. >> thank you. now new developments in a story re reported at 4 a.m. the chp is investigating another shooting on interstate 80. this one happened last night
near hercules on highway 4. investigators say the driver of a black nissan altima crashed into the center divide after he was hit by gunfire from a passing car. the victim was treated for two bullet wounds to his leg. no one else was hurt. the shooter was inside a white sedan. it's unknown if this is connected other recent shootings on interstate 80. a bizarre story. a hayward police car has been recovered. it was stolen early this morning. police say the patrol car was running right outside the police station and an officer was standing nearby, but someone jumped into the driver's seat and took off. new, police found the car about 4:30 this morning with the help of a gps system. the suspect had already fled. police say there was no damage. nothing was missing from that patrol car. 7:06. new this morning a massive search underway for a gunman who shot two police officers in new hampshire. it happened early this morning in the city of manchester. both wounded officers are
expected to survive. authorities are describing the gunman as a white man with long hair wearing a trench coat. police have shut down schools in the area and they have ordered many people in manchester to stay inside as the search for that gunman continues. there is an update to a story of three oakland police officers accused of having sex with a girl who may have been underage. the police department told ktvu one of the officers is also under criminal investigation. the officers are on administrative leave. now, the girl is a daughter of a civilian employee within the police department. investigators want to confirm if the girl was a minor at the time. >> men and women of this department work very hard to build relationships with our community of trust and enforcing the laws. we take any allegations of misconduct with any of our employees very seriously. >> now, the police department's internal affairs unit are looking into the allegations. the investigation started after an oakland police officer committed suicide last fall.
there is a new debate over how to make the waters of san francisco's ocean beach safer for visitors. it was sparked by recent drownings and rescues at observation beach. most recently last month two 17- year-olds from vallejo drowned after being swept off to sea. there are critics, including the national parks service, who say adding lifeguards would encourage more people to enter the water near 7:08. the san jose sharks won last night. they are in the western conference final of the stanley cup playoffs. first time in five seasons. >> down low. he scores! >> scored on the power play in the first period and the sharks never looked back. they dominated the national predators 5-0 in game seven. more than 17,000 fans looked on
at sap center. >> you know, we are confident about what we can do. we knew if we played a good 60 with the fans behind us, we had a good shot at winning. >> never gets easier. these teams are all good. good goalies. it feels good. but we understand this is the second step. it feels good, but we to keep going. >> the sharks have never won the stanley cup in their 25- year history. they have to get past the st. louis blues to get to the finals. that best of seven series starts sunday night in st. louis. the first game at sap center will be game three on thursday. warriors fans are getting a rare chance to take a picture with both of steph curry's mvp trophies. the mvp trophies will be at oracle arena from 9 a.m. to 9:00. you can get your picture taken with both of the trophies. steph curry is the first unanimous winner of the mvp trophy and the 11th player in
nba history to win the award in back-to-back seasons. we know who the warriors will play. they will be playing the oklahoma city thunder in the western conference finals. series starts in oakland monday. the thunder beat the san antonio spurs 113-99 in game six of their series last night. the spurs' fans are wondering about the last game. he says he hasn't decided whether or not he will return for a 20th season. now, that thunder-warriors series against monday night 6 p.m. game two is wednesday night. the series moves to oklahoma city for game three on sunday, may 22nd. game four will be tuesday, may 24th. want to hear a strange story? >> i want to see it. >> okay. a man broke into a sporting goods store in sacramento wearing almost nothing at all. it was all caught on camera. in 20 minutes what he did after that that gives in story a stranger twist. also, cheaters in the carpool lane. how many bay area drivers are trying to beat the system during the morning and evening commutes. and we are looking at a
commute on the san mateo bridge that is terrible. this is because of a motorcycle accident near the high-rise. it's affecting both directions of the bridge. you need to use an alternate like the bay bridge or the dumbarton. we will give you more on this straight ahead. a cooler inland forecast for this friday. we will talk about that and also the weekend.
welcome back to "mornings on 2". time 7:13. there is a new transportation study confirming what you and most bay area drivers already know. carpool lanes are crowded with cheaters. the study found that on average 24% of the drivers in carpool lanes in the morning commute don't have the required number of passengers. that number is 19% during the evening commute in the bay area. now, transit leaders worry these carpool cheats could bring an end to the system.
it's designed to encourage drivers to carry extra passengers in exchange for a faster commute. >> that's about one in four drivers right now in the heart of the morning commute. sal castaneda, i can't imagine you are surprised by the numbers. >> i am not surprised by the numbers. i think that people are trying to get, unfortunately, people are trying to get the edge whichever way they can. >> yeah. >> even though if you get caught, obviously, it's very expensive. >> hundreds of dollars. >> i wouldn't recommend it. i certainly would not recommend it. i would leave early. it's hard to do. let's see what we can see. we have had some problems out there. i want to let you know that the san mateo bridge is a big mess because of a motorcycle accident. the only good news i can glean from this accident is that the driver is alert and conscious, but still injured. but westbound 92 is blocked, the left lane, and so is eastbound 92. one side with the emergency vehicles. one side with the actual crash. and the traffic is a mess. it seems to be getting a little
bit better as they are attending to the injured. but the san mateo bridge is something for you to avoid. you might want to think about going up to the bay bridge, which doesn't look too bad. it's actually lighter than usual. if you can drive out of your way, you will have a more pleasant commute a crossing the bay. we also have some really unpleasant news if you drive from santa cruz to los gatos northbound 17. we had some late roadwork near the glenwood cut-off and the traffic is just a mess in this area. now at 7:15 let's bring steve? thank you, sir. we have a few breaks in the low clouds. they are much higher this morning than yesterday. really the kiowas that delta breeze. as soon as i saw gusts at 32 at travis, that told me everything i needed to do as far as inland cooling. there is a system off the coast. it will be working towards us. it takes that fog back and lifts it. cooler inland today. it's been there all week. it burns off inland pretty quick and that allows temperatures to hit the 80s and out to the valley 90s.
it was 50s, 60s most of the week around the coast and the bay. plenty of low clouds and a few high clouds in the mix. average 64/51. has not been above that since may 5th. 1882 is the record low. 50s on the temps. low-mid. sfo is 57. oakland's 57. brentwood it's in there, mountain view, hayward, also san jose. up north again calistoga and kelseyville higher elevations upper 40s. napa low 50s, novato, even 50 at bodega bay. coast, bay, inland, yet that's a huge difference. 22 gusts to 30. delta breeze. that's the low. it's working towards northern casino. that enhances the fog banks an
chews it up. a few isolated showers in the mountains. shasta, northeast california and the sierra on saturday. so mark that down if you are heading on either one of those directions. morning fog. cooler inland today. we will get some sun. the trend is for cooler weather saturday. a bump up on those temps on sunday. there is a little bit of precip in the mix. probably drizzle for most. i think santa rosa, sacramento north isolated showers possible on saturday, saturday afternoon as that low drags across. bigger fog bank. cooler, breezy here, mostly cloudy, partly cloudy here. local drizzle. cooler inland. windy for delta, cordelia, san mateo, sfo later today. but 50s, 60s, and 70s now out of those mid 80s to a few upper 80s earlier this week around vacaville. antioch, oakwood, cool off. east san jose really never warmed up that of this week. and nor did the north bay. mainly an east bay event.
50s, 60s, coast. cooler saturday. partly to mostly cloudy. a break on sunday. warmer monday, tuesday. >> so grab a sweater or jacket? >> yeah, a little cool for some. inland won't be bad. comfortable. a little cool coast. >> thank you. >> any name three years in the making, but the san francisco museum of modern art is re- opening. >> ktvu's brian flores is live at momo telling us about the opening celebration. looks like you moved outside on the terrace? >> reporter: that's right. we are outside in the sculptured terrace. we are inside the museum, but outside this morning. this is the museum's brand new for students and drivers fmoma. sarah roberts is the associate curator joining us. talk about these sculptures. >> we are standing in the new sculpture terrace. we have some large-scale pieces. this is from 1969.
fantastic colors. it complements the smaller works inside the gallery. >> reporter: look at this, folks. dave and gasia, this is a living wall, right? >> wow. >> reporter: this is an art piece, but it's plants. it's native to the area? >> that's right. >> reporter: of california, right? >> all species of plants native to california. this is a space that doesn't get a lot of light. all plants were selected from the kinds of things you find growing in a redwood forest of california. it's 115 feet long. it's a great place to get a glimpse of green and fresh air when you are visiting the museum. >> reporter: it's beautiful. i want to talk more about this living wall before we talk about the events this weekend. how do you irrigate something reich this? >> it has its own internal irrigation system. it captures rainwater which is recycled in the basement and put right back into the plants. it's completely self- sustaining. >> reporter: it's the only one in the united states? >> it's the largest in the united states. but there are several here in
the bay area. >> reporter: there is this, the living wall, which i love. i was hoping to save to the end of the newscast. i couldn't help myself. we have the opening of the museum. three years in the making. saturday. talk about that. >> we open tomorrow at 9:15. a ribbon-cutting ceremony on howard street. and then the museum will be open. an exciting here. all the cultural institutions in the area, contemporary jewish museum, the museum of the african diasps will be open. the music festival. >> reporter: people that are hoping to go on opening day, you are trying to give away free tickets. but is it -- are they still available? >> tomorrow's completely sold out actually. fantastic turnout. but we hope that people will go online to get their tickets for coming days. >> reporter: something new, guys, about the museum now. anyone under 18 years old comes in for free, right? that's a great program. >> great program. we are super excited. anyone 18 and under will be
free admission to the museum. so we really hope that families will bring the kids and come check out what we have to offer. >> reporter: thank you. back out here live, beautiful sculptures out here. i absolutely love this living wall. i think i could be out here for the rest of the morning, guys. i love breathe this out here in the city. come out to sfmoma. opening on saturday, guys. back to you. >> that is spectacular. >> brian, if you could ask sarah there quickly, the expansion came in part because of a major donation by the fishers, who we know are tied to san francisco? >> reporter: that's exactly right. we are talking about the fishers and the expansion and how much they have meant to the expansion here at the museum, correct? >> that's right. the expansion really came about through generosity of the fishers and other donors in the community. but we have the fisher collection here at the museum now. about 270 works on view from their absolutely unparalleled collection of american and german post-war art.
so that's what people will see on the fourth, fifth, and sixth floors. >> reporter: we have only been on air for our segments twice, but there is plenty to show you through the morning. stick here on "mornings on 2", guys. we will be going through the museum. back to you. >> thank you so much. time is 7:22. dozens of students got sick at a south bay elementary school. dozens of them. in minutes the bug they all caught and what the school is doing to prevent that illness from spreading. a skydiving plane crash lands upside down in lodi and no one was seriously hurt. up next we are hearing this same skydiving company has had troubles in the past.

their plane landed upside down in a vineyard in lodi. it happened yesterday shortly after the plane, a cessna 208, took off. it had engine problems. it went down in that vineyard near the lodi airport. it also damaged a car. >> it looked like a crop duster plane that would go low and come up before the wires. this plane came down, cleared the wires, clipped our car. >> he had no options. the only clear place he had to land was where he touched down. he had too much speed to stop before he got to the road. it wasn't the pilot. it was the airplane. >> incredibly, no one was seriously hurt. the skydivers were back in the air within 15 minutes after that crash. there are reports the lodi skydiving country has a history of accidents. ktra tv is reporting seven people have died since 1999. 7:26. in sacramento county a man was arrested after he broke into a soccer supply store and he wasn't wearing much at all. he took what he was wearing
off. all caught on surveillance video, which is what we are showing you now. he breaks a glass door. that's how he gets inside. once inside things get a little stranger. he removes his pants and then he starts sweeping up the mess that he made. the owner says that he saw the video and he was shocked, but he really wasn't angry. >> somebody's gonna break in, immediately you're thinking they're gonna steal something or do something bad. he didn't do anything really bad. >> the man did clean up and then grabbed a beer and candy. you see here he kind of left the same way he came in. this man has been identified as 28-year-old timothy prater. the owner says he felt bad for him and ended up giving him a shirt before police took him away. 7:27. here in san francisco's most colorful race, beta breakers this morning. up next the do's and don'ts to keep in mind if you plan to run or walk the race. and amid calls for san
francisco's police chief to be replaced, we are talking this morning with san francisco mayor ed lee. he is about to hold -- or be a part of a community meeting here in the westport al district. you will hear from the mayor on this issue coming up in just a couple of minutes. good morning. we are looking at a commute here where traffic on highway 24 is a little bit slow, but it's better than it normally is. we will let you know about the bridges when we come back. some breaks in the low clouds. there is a lot more to go around today than the last couple of days. temperatures will cool. i will show you why coming up.
7:31 this friday morning, may 13. i am gasia mikaelian. >> i am dave clark. san francisco mayor ed lee and police chief greg suhr are about to hold a meeting with community leaders. >> alex, there is a range of topics on the agenda? >> reporter: yeah, there is a whole lot of topics on the agenda here. this meeting was a community meeting planned ahead of time here in the west portal neighborhood. among the topics that will be discussed today will be issues of police reform in the city and the performance of the police chief. there have been, obviously, as we have seen a number of intense protests over the past couple of months. there have been calls for the police chief to step down. mr. mayor, thank you first of all for taking the time this morning. what is the goal of this meeting here and what will be discussed today? >> good morning, alex. thank you for coming out here.
we are at the manor catheim. this is one of many city-wide meetings that we are having. i am glad to be out here with our chief of police, our local captain, and an invitation, if not a request, by a number of neighborhood groups to talk about neighborhood crime. i have to be sensitive to the fact that while we have a lot of discussions about police reform, we also are having a lot of requests that people are seeing property crime go up in their neighborhoods, whether it's car break-ins, burglaries, home invasions. we have got to pay attention to that. right now i am on the verge of adopting a budget, and i want to make sure that our budget reflects priorities of our neighborhoods. so we're here to listen, to make sure we reflect that in our approach to this, and people said, hey, can we get some attention out here? you know, people park their
cars. all of a sudden there is -- it's kind of like repeat offenders coming in, breaking the windows and just this property crime is kind of, in their minds, out of control. they don't know what's going on. i want to get more beat officers out here. i think that's what they want to do. we want to also, while we are doing police reform, pay attention to crime prevention. it's just as important, and we have got to figure that out. >> reporter: i know you were, at the same time, paying attention to the series of protests that we have seen the past few months in the city. there have been new calls from demonstrators, obviously, for the police chief to be replaced. we now have four city supervisors who say they believe we may need a new chief in this city. how much confidence do you have in the performance of police chief greg suhr? >> well, here's my very strong view about this. we have a reform package where i had asked both the president of the police commission, as well as the chief, to say,
look, we've got to have updated 21st century police practices. where do those ideas come from? it comes from president obama's look at all the cities across the country where they have had issues of officer-involved shootings. how to change that. how have to practices where the sanctity of life becomes a principle and can we back off when you have got a weapon in somebody's hands, like a knife, and you've got a number of officers shooting. it may not be the appropriate response. so how do we do that? we change the practices. we re-train. and the chief has led that effort, along with the commission, to a very collaborative process with our residents. i believe those reforms not only are true and real, but they will also be adopted in a very aggressive way. until i see otherwise, i think our thief is there to help us with -- our chief is there to help us with it, and we are having this confirmed by the
highest authority in the country, which is the cop, which is the department of justice, and if they felt that we were resisting, they would come in and do an even deeper investigation to order us. like, for example, what they've done in places like oakland where they kind of almost took over the police department. they haven't felt the necessity to do that because we are proceeding in a very deliberate ray. >> reporter: was it the district attorney's task force found there was bias in terms of how communities of color were policed in san francisco. you obviously saw the findings there. how much concern do those findings cause you? >> we are going to pay attention to that. we haven't seen the report even from the dirict attorney yet. we will include that. i will look at not only the opinions of protesters, people who feel maybe stronger about these reforms. not only the district attorney, but we also want that. that would be a part of the authoritative review that the department of justice is doing because we think that that's
the professional oversight. and if we need in, we are transparent, we are open about this, we are including everything from the office of citizens complaint as well as the chief and the commission, that's where we want to seek that professional review and to make sure it's not politicized. also, i think every neighborhood of san francisco says while you're paying attention to that, we appreciate a transparent, trustworthy police department. we also want the day to day stuff in our neighborhood to be paid attention to as well. that's just as important. that's why coming out here, i have been receiving requests from north beach to bayview to westportal. when you are doing this incredible budget that you are and you are doing thcommunity stuff, get the chief out here. get the captains to make sure we've got beat officers that help us on a day-to-day basis. that's why we're out here because i have heard there is
this 30% increase in property crimes. it's something we have got to pay attention to. i want to make sure we are doing that. >> reporter: okay. mr. mayor, we appreciate your time this morning. let you get into the manor cafe. you are going to have a meeting here to talk about issues of property crime in this particular neighborhood. thank you for taking the time. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> reporter: so that meeting gets underway at 8:00 this morning. the mayor and the police chief talking face to face with community leaders. let's see. 8:00 this morning. just a few minutes from now. we will bring that to you when it happens. >> thank you. and mayor lee, thank you as well. time is 7:37. let's check weather for you now. steve paulson is right over here. >> cooler cooler, you guys. even with breaks in the clouds it's going to be cooler. low clouds are there. also a few high clouds. a low is approaching and that's going to bump out the high. it's picked up the breeze for some. some reports from cordelia, fairfield it's rather blustery
at times. not for everybody. for some. you can see a little bit of a sun break or two. jamie nelson was the friday award winner here. another perfect start to the weekend. we live in paradise. looking from sleepy hollow divide to terra linda. thank you. there are a few breaks in the clouds up there for some. not for all. antonio is our future weathercaster from daly city. good morning, steve. currently 54 degrees with foggy skies and a little mist in d.c. yeah, there is a little mist out there. there will be more tomorrow morning. at the same time it might chew up that fog bank. 50s to 160. lone outpost in brentwood. 56 antioch. 53 black hawk. east bay temps pretty close. martinez, concord, walnut creek all 54 and san ramon says, hey, we're 54 as well. the breezy is the story.
west,west,southwest, west at sfo. this low was tracking. we have a bad image there. it is moving towards us. this will continue to cool us down. cooler air aloft as well as maybe fire up a few thunderstorms in northeast california and also over the sierra over the weekend. so just put that down. bigger fog bank. it's lifting. there are some breaks. cooler and breezy. that's the main message here. oops. i am not going anywhere this time. 50s, 60s, and 70s. had to put on the air brakes. sal, you have an issue on the san mateo, or has that gotten better? >> the san mateo is still slow. the good news, and i am glad you asked about that, they cleared it. there is a new crash reported in oakland on 880 southbound. southbound 880 near 16. looks like we found it here. the tow truck is there. traffic was backed up from 980. it looks like they have made a little bit of progress here and it's improving in this area, as you can see. traffic is busy, but it's improving. let's talk about that san mateo bridge because steve mentioned
it. the lanes are clear. all opened and traffic is recovering. at the bay bridge we have had a lighter than usual commute and there is a little bit of a backup. but you can tell it's much better than it normally is get nothing san francisco. it's 7:40. back to the desk. >> sal, thank you. there are lots of still unanswered questions about a double homicide in the south bay. in redwood estates investigators with metal detectors and even search dogs scoured an area looking for evidence after a 52-year-old man was shot and killed in this home on wednesday. two other men were hurt. the neighbors in the area were stunned to hear this. >> shocking. unfortunate. yeah. something like this never really happens in redwood estates. >> police arrested a suspect. 43-year-old andre redmond, who they say sped away from the crime scene. there was a high-speed chase that ended in crash in campbell. police say they found a critically injured man in the back seat. he later died in the hospital.
investigators haven't yet told us about a possible connection to redmond, who is facing charges of two counts of murder and false imprisonment. a stomach flu outbreak is forcing students to stay inside during recess and lunch today. at least 90 students at horace mann elementary has caught the bug in the past two weeks. the school is going through a thorough cleaning and it's even canceled the annual school musical over fears the virus will spread. 7:41. the organizers of this sunday's beta breakers race are reminding everybody about the do's and don'ts for this clear's event -- year's event. it's the 105th year of the annual race in san francisco. they want you to know you cannot bring alcohol or drugs. no nudity is allowed. also no ice chests or any bag bigger than a small backpack. and the police are stressing if you see anything that doesn't look right, speak up. >> we want to make sure to
remind the public, if you see something, say something. if you see something suspicious or out of the ordinary, we ask that you contact a uniformed officer or bay to breakers person working the event. >> the 12k race begins 8 a.m. sunday morning. there will be roads closed and detours in the city. at least 40,000 runners and walkers plan to take part. 7:42. you don't have to be rich to get special treatment thanks to burger king. where you can have a spa day while enjoying your whopper. >> wow. first, a sweeping change from the obama administration. it's coming to your child's school bathroom. when consultant josh atkins books at laquinta.com.

welcome back thornton. time is 7:44. every public school in the nation now has to start accommodating transgender students or there could be big consequences. >> pam cook is back in the studio with the latest on this battle over bathrooms. >> that is the decree from the obama administration sent out to every public school district this morning. now, the department of justice and the department of education sending that to school districts around the country. the letter says schools have to allow transgender students to use facilities that match their chosen gender identity. not necessarily their birth certificate. attorney general loretta lynch supports it. she calls transgender access a civil rights issue and says the desire to accommodate other's discomfort cannot justify a policy that singles out and disadvantages a particular class of students. >> we see you. we stand with you and we will do everything we can to protect
you going forward. >> now, at this point it is a guideline. not a law. however, there is the threat that schools could lose federal aid if they don't accommodate transgender students. now, some schools' superintendents are responding. they are suggesting a men's, women's, and unisex bathroom. but i tell you, i am hearing from a lot of people on my facebook page. mostly fathers of teenage daughters who are worried because they are thinking there are going to be teenage boys with not so noble intentions using this as an excuse to go into the girl's bathroom. it's a heated debate that we are going to hear more of. >> and it's opening up a lot of conversations. >> definitely. right. >> thank you. time is 7:46. another big announcement from pope francis making another break with tradition. he is willing to consider women
being deacons in the catholic church. they can perform many of the same functions as a priest. right now the deacon position is opened to married men, but not women. the pope made his comments after a meeting with 900 superiors of female religious orders in rome for their assembly. it's held every three years. >> so women are able to make decisions at the same levels of men, as priests and bishops, and we live in an equal situation. >> now, the experts say even if the commission recommends allowing women to become deacons, it's not likely the church's prohibition on female priests will change. 7:47. sal, we were seeing friday light up until that bridge problem? >> yeah, fortunately, that bridge problem has been removed. so things are improving a little bit. but we still see some is slow traffic on the san mateo bridge. i also want to mention highway 24 and 680. a little bit better than normal. now a little bit more crowding

and 85, but not quite as much volume. i just walked in, sal. i was talking with pete, the sports producer. he is getting in earlier and earlier. have you noticed that? >> i happen to know why. they are producing something really big in the sports department and it's going to air soon. >> there you go, thank you. all right. we have a fog bank that's got some breaks in it. marin county to sonoma county. there is plenty to go around. mostly cloudy over the bay and higher clouds but some sun breaks in the mix. a low is approaching and that's cranked up the breeze for some. bigger freddie gray. -- a bigger fog bank. warmer early next week. hints of another low dropping in next weekend. cooler inland today. that's the message because the fog bank, well, lift, and that delta breeze has just thrown in the towel and is going bonkers. low clouds in place. a few high clouds. 50s, 60s on the temps.

inland areas. that should chew up the fog bank. it's a bigger fog bank. it looks like a breezy day today. a mix of low clouds, high clouds. 50s, 60s. brentwood 63. upper 50s for some. this will be a cooler day for those away from the coast. this is why. west-southwest 26. gusts to 32, west at concord west. at napa, i mean there is a definite sea breeze in place. see if we have some missing images here. there is your low. that's going to bump the high out, usher in cooler air aloft and that translates into cooler air for the inland temps. look for 60s, 70s, morning fog, cooler inland and this cooler pattern will continue right into tomorrow. all right. sal, 8:31. what do you have, sir? >> we have traffic that is busy, steve. we have had a slightly lighter than usual commute. a couple of glitches though. at the bay bridge we had a later commute. people showed up in the last half hour. but it's still not the same as
it would be, let's say, on a monday. you can tell by looking at 880. that ramp coming down, there is a line, but it's not as big. and if you wait around, maybe after you watch "the 9", after "the 9", then you can go into the city. i think it will be good. a little shameless self- promotion. westbound 92 has improved. an earlier motorcycle accident at the high-rise. they have cleared it and traffic started recovering and things are much better. san jose, silicone valley commute slowing on 85 through sunnyvale. 101 slow near 280. 87 is a little slow. definitely a better than normal commute. new this morning, as we are speaking to you right now, san francisco mayor ed lee and police chief greg suhr are meeting with community leaders. >> a wide range of topics. a lot of focus on recent controversial police shootings and conduct within sfpd.
alex savidge is live. >> reporter: yeah. good morning to you guys. and the mayor says he is confident in the job the chief is doing. that's what he told us earlier this morning. the community meeting you spoke about is ongoing behind us inside the manor cafe in the westportle neighborhood. this meeting was not specifically to address issues of police reform and the perspective of the police chief, but those are issues that likely will be brought up. the focus is property crime in this area. the mayor took time to talk with us about all the controversy that is swirling around police chief greg suhr. we have seen the ongoing protests over the past couple of months. they have intensified. protests are calling for the chief to shut down because of police shootings and that race exist text messaging scandal. four san francisco supervisors are saying they believe the chief needs to be replaced. but the mayor this morning says he has no intense of getting
